Multi-award-winning star Tubby Boy talks us through his inspiring career – and why he’s using Indiy to take it to the next level.
Born and raised in Croydon, South London, Tubby boy has been performing and touring up and down the country headlining events and entertaining diverse crowds of people with his eclectic sound.
I decided to make music my career at 17, but I’ve been doing music forever. It’s been a long, deep, and happy marriage – even if I only made it official at 17! I’m 29 now, so that’s more than ten years in the game and I’m still loving every minute.
I’ve just released my latest ep, called Conscious – that’s what I’m primarily using Indiy for, right now.
The aim of the game with all my music is to show up, bring that real energetic fun – but also have an underlying, deeper message that inspires people as they’re singing along.
I’ve been through many experiences of ‘official’ management and corporate representation, but it never really went my way.
It never felt like I had free reign to truly create, to make the sort of art I wanted to; I had to put my destiny in other people’s hands, and that just didn’t feel right.
My mantra for life has always been: ‘Feel free to be free.’ So, I decided to be truly independent. Everything you see coming from Tubby Boy – records, videos, everything – is 100% completely from me. That’s because I want to inspire others to chase their dreams and change the world. The hardest thing in this day in age is feeling like it’s ok to just be you; whatever you want to be, whether that’s a rapper, a lawyer, a doctor – focus on your dream and you can make it happen. Keep believing, be patient.
I use Indiy for a couple of months at a time, whenever I’m launching a single or a project, for Spotify and download streams. It’s been excellent so far – it gives you a massive push, for a great price, and allows independent artists to flourish.
I’ve known Big Chris (founder of Indiy) for years, even since he was performing himself. He’s been a bredren for a while. It’s been so inspiring to see him go from living in his yard, being a producer – to living his dream, fulltime. He can wake up every day and go out and do what he loves; that’s really inspiring.
Indiy has really and truly surpassed my expectations. It’s put me in a place on streaming sites where I’m a go-to artist. Before I started using the platform, I was slightly hard to find – but not anymore. And that feels great.
Also, in comparison to other promoters and other sites, it’s 100% brilliant value for money.
I already do! Whenever I tell people about it, they’re like – ‘What?!’ And then they see the product, and how well it works, and suddenly it’s: ‘Man that’s dope!’
I want to inspire others to chase their dreams and change the world.
